Default Foxconn CEO running for Taiwan president

Terry Guo, CEO of Foxconn, the contract manufacturer for iphones, electronics (pretty much anything that contains plastic and a circuit board), will run for president in Taiwan.

If elected (which I think he has a really good chance of) he will undoubtedly push Taiwan closer to China.

So given the latter you would prefer he does not get elected?

Just an observation. Given how much power and business Terry has in China, and the political interest China has in Taiwan, I do forsee China will have a hand in getting him elected.

I don't have a strong opinion about China-Taiwan relations politically. Though most of my relatives are pro-"One China"
